Two of our favorite Seahawks have made an ad for HealthCare.gov, the health insurance exchange website set up for Obamacare.

HealthCare.gov released the ad featuring Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson and cornerback Richard Sherman on Friday.

“Richard Sherman and Russell Wilson want you to know that now’s the time to shop for an affordable health insurance plan that fits your budget and health needs at www.HealthCare.gov,” the ad says.

The two are not dressed in official Seahawks gear, but are wearing Seahawks blue and allude to the game.

“When your health or the game is on the line, nothing is more important than quality coverage,” says Sherman.

“Make the right call. Visit healthcare.gov and get covered,” says Wilson. “All I know is, their receivers are going to be covered on Sundays.”

As a loyal Seahawks fan, even conservative 770 KTTH talk host David Boze says, “I’m not going to hold it against them,” but adds, “I hope they got a check for it.”
